I think that by now, we all know vegetables are good for us. So why is it most of us still go through the day without eating any at all? P.S. That shredded iceberg lettuce in your pita wrap does NOT count

Here are the two main reasons:

  • We don’t like how they taste
  • We don’t know how to add them into our diet

With this recipe, you’ll be tackling both. This is something SO SIMPLE you can do to start eating more vegetables and it’s still what I turn to on the days where I know I haven’t eaten enough.

Here what you do: for lunch or dinner, eat what you normally would, and then saute some dark leafy greens on the side in a bit of oil and sprinkle on seasonings. It takes two minutes, tastes amazing and you’ll feel ridiculously proud of yourself for have a plate of bright green veggies on your plate.
